The choice is yours, well, and your checkbook's.

The John Deere-types which are found on tractors mostly leak terribly. I've heard they're actually illegal in certain situations like construction sites because they leak and contaminate the ground.

Flat face connectors are suppose to be used to prevent leaks, but hey do just not as much.

The cost reflects the size of the connector which correlates to the type of fitting of hydrualic line it's made for, and the volume it's rated to carry. For your purpose, I'd go with the smallest connector both for size and to reduce greatly the fluid volume---you don't want the plow rotating fast because you will break something. I have a similar 8' plow from a truck on my skid steer and it slams hard if I don't feather the controls.

Even 1/4" may be too big depending on your pump's GPM. Consider installing a manually adjustable metering valve on one line and see what happens.

I don't know the name but the fittings some use can be simply pushed in and pulled out while others of the same "look" require two hands to operate with you pulling the outside sleeve on the female fitting to release the male fitting. I despise those. Here they are normally referred to as Pioneer fittings but think it is just the most popular brand. You also have to have the pressure broke or near zero for either of these. So that means cut off pump and work levers.

EW;
You have me wondering about the "John Deere Type" couplers that leak terribly.
Thinking back thru my farming days I just don't remember those couplers leaking more than a few drops when they were coupled or uncoupled. The "O" ring inside the female half would on a rare occasion get damaged or get dirt under it causing a leak, you can replace the "O" ring in a minute or two and it's good as new again.
The male half of the coupler with the ridge that fits in the "O" ring in the female half when coupled can get rusty and pitted from being left out in the weather for a long time, there is no fix to that but they can be replaced easily and at a low cost.
Leaks at threaded connections in a system were far more common in my experience.
Splain yer self a bit son.

KT;
I can't give you a brand name of those either but some tractors had them for the rear couplers to a towed implement.
The ones I remember were held by a bracket that fit around the sleve you mention and were a one hand operation.
They were common when the moldboard plows still had a trip hitch that unhooked when you hit a rock then the hoses to the lift cylinder could yank free from the couplers without tearing the hoses in half before you got the tractor stopped to back up and re hitch.
Pioneer got to be sort of a generic term for couplers, I can't off hand name other makers of couplers but there were many.
Frank.

Maybe Pioneer instead of JD? I don't like 'em whatever they're called. I prefer the flat-faced ones.

My understanding was that the JD style was a Pioneer fitting. It just had a slightly different shape to it.

There are several different types of fittings even within the Pioneer style.

The key however to minimizing leakage with any of them is to ensure that both sides of the circuit are not pressurized before coupling or uncoupling the lines.

Kenny, I think what you're thinking of is the 'safety' style of coupler in which the outer ring can either be pushed or pulled to release the connection. If they are mounted in a collar by that ring they disconnect merely by pulling on the lines.

Best of luck.

Frank, Murf, the fittings that came on my M6800 Cubit are mounted on steel tubing with the outside of the quick disconnect not mounted. You push the hose in to inserted and give it a tug and it will pull out, as long as no pressure on it. Did not know how much I liked that until one was damaged and replaced it with much lower price Pioneer Brand which requires the outside sleeved pulled toward you to insert or remove the male end. Last I checked the Cubit fitting was about $70 or $80 each for the female fitting. Might make a good Christmas gift from the tractor. Smile
